    Not yet, but if we don't do something soon to curb the hate speech and the incitements to violence we won't be far off

    It might be laughable for you but when our group visited Soweto a vehicle with tinted windows was used. Also, walking around in the evening was a big no no. Enough said.

    But what do I know GLHF
    Can't be. People want open borders with Mexico.

    While everyone else goes in normal cars without issues? Come on mate, try something else. A white ex colleague could drive in and out of the township anytime he wanted. Employers drop off and pick up their employees every now and then. Some even visit their friends out in the kasi!
    Yeah whatever mate

    And some tourists are taken on bicycle rides around the township, The Foreigner is just being his usual foreigner self. Which year was is it when there was a Rugby game in Soweto? I don't remember anything about murdered white people who went there to watch the game.
    I am of a nation that would not allow that fear of death, of torture, of imprisonment, of exile or persecution should result in the perpetuation of injustice.

    Imagine him on one of these tours.

    How do farmers make it out of villages, where they sell their produce daily? Greek/Portuguese shops back in the rural areas.
    Yeah whatever mate

    only info ive seen is that the escort was driving along malboro drive when the drive by occurred. 2 cars drove up next to the taxi boss car and opened fire. police did nuffing. did not follow, not open fire, apart from called the ambulance im guessing


    then as f2wohf said, why do these clowns get a police escorts anyway. why cant they hire private security.


    the police can chase in other instances, but did nothing here. odd imo. then again knowing this place, its possible that someone in the police gave away the escort details for a planned hit...

    Something just does not add up with the Police escort story and Police doing absolutely nothing while someone is being shot right in front of them.
